Where we cover: the Olympic Peninsula

For our purposes, the Olympic Peninsula includes the OP proper, the Kitsap Peninsula, the Hood Canal area, and reaches down to Grays Harbor and the Long Beach Peninsula. This is basically the westernmost parts of Western Washington. See the map below to understand our territory.




towns and amazing communities

The Olympic Peninsula has some great towns. We’re going to share them all! Our favorites are of course Port Townsend, Poulsbo and Westport, but there are so many more! Thankfully, we have friends and family everywhere to help us discover the best places to visit on the Olympic Peninsula (and we already know a lot of them).

Best beaches on the Olympic Peninsula

People don’t think of Washington State as the land of beaches, but we’re so lucky to have more than 3000 miles of beach. True, much of it is because we have so many islands and the enormous Puget Sound, but we’ve got miles and miles of Pacific Ocean coastline.

Hiking in the Olympic Mountains and beyond

There are views to behold and waterfalls to chase all around the Olympic Peninsula. Did you know that besides Olympic National Park, there is a whole National Forest? And several State Parks and National Wildlife Refuges? That’s right!!!  Endless amazing hiking all over the OlyPen!
